    This is a sad story. He should’ve been kept in Oregon.

    Wildlife animals are better in humanity than humans are!!Every animal deserves to live without interferring from the creature on 2 legs...they are basically inhumane

    Such a sad story, loved the film growing up. He should never been captured in the first place. We learn from our mistakes. At least he had a chance to experience a somewhat normal life in ocean waters.

    In this case, it may have been better to keep him in the rehabilitation pool. I doubt he had a good life in freedom

    You didn’t deserve that, Keiko. You died when I was 10 years old. Hopefully, there is sea life in Heaven

    Never knew the whole story-so very sad. Separating him from his pod disrupts a pods whole synchronized existence. And then to put him in a tiny poolOMG! We humans can be so cruel & destructive. Glad he had some years of living in the open waters‼️

    This was so hearting breaking to watch, how can humans do this to so many other creatures just like Orcas all over the world, all for money and greed
